We still do not know everything. Good Times.

comment Is “Causality” the equivalent of a claim that the future is predictable based on the present and the past?
To elaborate if you can ably predict the future accurately if you have "perfect" knowledge thus makeing perfect knowledge impossible because the knowledge you already have is not enough to perfectly predict the future of your current knowledge.

It seems to be the time between starting to accumulate this information and having all of it something will change preventing you from reaching your goal in a finite time.

comment Is there any simple quantum model by Gerard 't Hooft which can explain the double slit experiment?
Particularly "Your questions should be reasonably scoped. If you can imagine an entire book that answers your question, you’re asking too much."

Seems you may be interested in a debate. I suggest editing your post to follow the "FAQ":

comment Why do photons add mass to a black hole?
To expand on my "soft" understanding the photon does not hit the eh just the backup of material created by the eh. Does the same increase occur if the photon crosses the eh "un-interrupted" not yet quite far enough to prove GR mute when would the momentum effect the BH as soon as it passes the eh or is there a certain point were the energy becomes part of the BH.

comment Why do photons add mass to a black hole?
Is this added mass arbitrary compared to the Hawking radiation or can the singularity be maintained indefinitely by photons?

comment Is it possible to build an instrument which can travel faster than light?
@dmckee: This question is not interested in accelerating anything. I believe it is not a duplicate.

comment Why are the physical sciences described perfectly by mathematics?
I think of math as useing numbers for anything other than counting. New math is no more significant in its respective time frame. As a whole the concept of the numbers themselves and the process of minipulation. How does this describe sciences?

comment What is the fundamental differences between bound and entangled states
I am working on the assumption that both photons exist in the aforementioned massive particle in the form of electron energy.

comment What is the fundamental differences between bound and entangled states
The decay transfers energy to each so the particle and the energy are bound to the process of entanglement? Is this correct because each opposite energy is determined to stay bound by the original division of energy.

comment What is the fundamental differences between bound and entangled states
What occurs to establish this correlation. Do these entangled particles need to exchange energy to achieve entanglement?

comment Friction at zero temperature?
Side question. Would any type of friction cause heat therefore friction prevents absolute zero?

comment What is the mechanical explanation for obstruction of motion by an object?
What you are thinking is pretty close to correct. A picture would really help clarify a few issues with the math. Be carefully not to confuse the force applies to the box(1) from towing with the force applied from box(1) on box(2).

@Bernhard: I edited my answer to reflect the intended question.

comment Is it possible to lift yourself off from the ground?
Taken as what the open should have said then no because you can not pick yourself up in this manner unless you have a higher mass objects to offset the force. The wording is very non-specific.

comment Is it possible to lift yourself off from the ground?
Using your wrist as a fulcrum and pushing your hands down ie straightening your wrist. In the wording of the question this is completely possible.

comment Why do beverages taste different based on how cold they are?
Specifically, how does the temperature for example mask certain tastes ie filtered vs unfiltered water taste very similar at colder temp and Is easily distinguishable at room temp?
